From a power station into an architecture museum

VISUEL_ARCHTRIUMPH_02

Good Morning !!! One of the best known landmarks in London, the Battersea power station, will be transformed into an architecture museum. Atelier Zündel Cristea (AZC) won the competition to design this iconic building. Personally I think they did a great job.

From the moment I laid my eyes on the design, I was captivated. I didn’t need to check their concept or what they had in mind because it’s obvious, it’s all about fun, I know fun is relative for every person, but these architects knew how to make it appealing for people of all ages.

The main focus of this museum won’t be the exhibition of interesting project, but it is to attract each one of us to go, explore, share these stimulating works, and therefore educate people.

The notable integration of the roller coaster creates a connection between the building and it’s surroundings, by providing a great view of the city and of this remarkable site that is Grade II* listed.
